Their average age (unless they met a violent death) was about 250 years, which they seldom fell far short of, but could occasionally far exceed (up to 300). A Dwarf of 300 was about as rare and aged as a Man of 100.
Dwarves are considered adults at about age 40, and they can live to be more than 400 years old.
Most people with dwarfism have a normal life expectancy. People with achondroplasia at one time were thought to have a life span shorter by about 10 years than the general population.
Dwarves also reach maturity at age 40, but middle age sets in at about 125. A dwarf of 188 years of age is considered old, 250 is considered venerable, and the maximum life span for a dwarf is around 252 to 450 years of age — again, a considerable amount of time to exist.
Fili: Born 2858, making him 82 years old during the quest. Kili: Born 2864, making him 77 during the quest.
The average lifespan of a Dwarf is 195 years which is a bit lower than one would expect considering that the age of oldest Dwarves exceeds 250 years.
How Is Dwarfism Diagnosed? Most pregnant women have a prenatal ultrasound to measure the baby’s growth at around 20 weeks.
The United Nations estimate a global average life expectancy of 72.6 years for 2019 – the global average today is higher than in any country back in 1950. According to the UN estimates the country with the best health in 1950 was Norway with a life expectancy of 72.3 years.
Dwarves can have children until their old age, but most no longer do however after the age of 120 or so. If a son is seen to be 110 or so years younger than his father, this usually indicates an elder daughter. The 4th age mark is that of old age, which happened at the age of 240 for most dwarves.
Description. Dwarves average four feet in height, with stout, broad bodies.
Since beards were part of the appearance, not the garb, of dwarf-men, we must conclude that dwarf-women did in fact have beards.
Smaug was at very least ~180 years old by the time he was slain.
Lilly also describes Tauriel as a nonconformist, explaining that as a result of her relative youth among Elves, she is brash and impulsive, tending to rebel against the established social order of the Elves. Lilly explains, “She’s only 600 years old, she’s just a baby.
